For Sale: 1965 Land Rover Series IIA in Richmond, Virginia

Vehicle Description

1965 Series 2a Land Rover 

Just restored to excellent standards, this UK built, Costa Rican specimen is in incredible condition. Imported in 2018, this Land Rover has been disassembled and rebuilt with many new parts, upgrades and creature comforts by Burro 4X4 in Richmond, Virginia. We took great care to restore safety and comfort, while improving upon the legendary dependability of the Land Rover marque. Many improvements were implemented to this end, including but not limited to: parabolic leaf springs, improved shock absorbers, disc handbrake conversion, and custom LED lighting. Fitted with an Ashcroft Transmisions high-range gear set, which raises the final gear ratio while preserving low-range crawl capabilities, this Land Rover is quite comfortable in difficult off-road environments as well as around town or on highways. Whether you're soaking up sun on the beach with the family, knocking around in the back woods alone, or heading out for a pint at the pub with friends, this trusty sidekick can handle anything you throw at it. Land Rovers are truly unique vehicles, with highly customizable modular construction, each with its own personality. With this in mind, our goal at Burro 4X4 is to create "heirloom" vehicles, sturdy enough to withstand the demands of rough terrain, comfortable enough to drive regularly, and durable enough to last for decades.
